About the EU Study Tour

The EU Study Tour and Internship Program is a unique field school opportunity for upper-level and graduate students in a variety of disciplines—business, economics, European politics, international relations, social policy, journalism and culture—to immerse themselves in the workings of European Union institutions. The Study Tour provides students with the opportunity to have face-to-face contact and dialogue with presenters and seminar leaders who are actively involved in the day-to-day work of the EU. Students will also meet with representatives of other European institutions (including Canada's), policy think tanks, and civil society organizations. This experience isn’t only about the EU—it’s in the EU! Each year great effort is made to highlight topics of current relevance to Europe and Canada as well as to continue to deliver a high-quality core program of economic, political, social, and business themes.

After the Study Tour, students have an opportunity for an internship with a European institution, for two months in duration. Completion of the Study Tour is a prerequisite for participation in the internship program.

Travel grants are available for UVic students from UVic's European Union Centre of Excellence to help cover the costs, and students can also apply to UVic's Student International Activities Fund for a $500 grant.
